Hallo zusammen! My name is Yves Jean-Baptiste and I am a part of the student worker team at Deutsches Haus this summer. I am a rising senior at CAS, double majoring in German Literature and Language, and Latin American Studies, in addition to being on the pre-med track. International travel, foreign languages and cultures, great food, exploring new cafés, biking, and anything related to Latin America (more specifically Argentina, since I studied in Buenos Aires for a semester) or Germany are great passions of mine. I began to learn German as an 11 year-old and have loved it ever since. Therefore, studying German in university seemed like an obvious choice. My German Literature and Language major led me to apply to work at Deutsches Haus and I am very fulfilled by being a part of this great team! I will also be a student of DH this summer to brush up on my German, since I could not use it very often in Argentina. It should be a very rewarding and pleasurable experience to learn with other students who are just as interested and passionate about the German language!
